They are trying to use an Office feature which hasn't yet been installed, hence it's asking for the CD to install that feature. When Office is initially installed it allows you pick and choose the features you want so as not to waste disk space --- so some stuff doesn't get installed the first time round, Windows just puts an entry for that feature in the menu, but that particular item just points to the CD to tell Windows it has to be installed on demand.
